Re: Cannot Find Available BDA Device

Hi all.
I have noticed that development of Winfast PVR application has lower priority than WinFast DTV. So I want to ask you if is it possible to run WinFast DTV with WalkieTV. I tried once but software didn't find my tv-card. Swithing BDA device function didn't succeed. Is it possible to run this software with my device?

Thanks for fast reply.
I'm glad to hear that you still working on Winfast PVR. So I will wait for possibilty to download and test a new version o this software. I hope that all issues of Winfast PVR (with WalkieTV) will be fast fixed. And I'm waiting for PVR 2 ....

So are you saying that the DTV software can be used by analog cards? Does it work with a PVR2000? Either retail or oem? Wouldn't mind tryin it if the software's compatible. Lost all faith in Leadtek due to faulty 3D cards and US office tech staff, Head office in TW doesn't care they never respond to any emails. Anyways if the DTV software is compatible I'd like to try it, maybe it'll keep me buying their TV cards last experience has made me look hard at Hauppauge as an alternative. You do a great job helping folks out here with the Winfast cards but I'm done promoting them or supporting them even here. I've seen first hand what sort of people they are and I just can't justify it any longer.
